Asmodee UK swept the board at this year’s UK Games Expo Awards, winning a whopping 24 awards out of the total 32 up for grabs.

Among the winning products were Who Did It?, the Fun Fast Games title which took the Judges’ Award for Best Children’s Game; Ticket to Ride: New York, which was awarded the People’s Choice winner for Best Family Game, and Maki Stack, crowned Best Party Game by the judges.
“We are thrilled by the success of our products at the UKGE Awards,” said Ben Hogg, marketing manager at Asmodee UK. “With recognition in almost every category, from children’s and family to role playing and miniatures, it’s proof that there is something for everyone in the Asmodee catalogue.”

UK Games Expo is the world’s third-biggest show of its kind and the largest in the UK, with a record-breaking 25,704 unique visitors attending it at Birmingham’s NEC over the course of the weekend in 2019. Asmodee has been a major feature of the show throughout its continued growth, and this year attended with a team of over 150 demonstrators to show off its hottest products to attendees.
Among the eye-catching products which drew the crowds was Ticket to Ride: London, a new mini edition of the wildly popular Modern Classic title which made its worldwide debut with a limited-numbers launch at UKGE. Players also flocked to get their hands on KeyForge: Age of Ascension, the hotly anticipated second release to Asmodee’s breakout hit card game, which celebrated its European launch at the show.
